Travis Goldman - Pinstripe Alley
1. If you had to drop one Yankee regular and replace him with a Red Sox regular who would you select and why?
Travis: Tough question. I'll keep it to position players, and in that case, the guy would have to be A-Gon. As good as Tex is, and he's having another excellent season (145 RC+), Gonzalez is contending for the MVP and is two years younger. For as bad as the Crawford signing looks, the Gonzalez trade was an absolute steal.
2. What are your thoughts on the Yankees' current TV and radio broadcast teams?
I actually do like YES for the most part. As annoying as Michael Kay can be, he's very knowledgeable about the game and asks pertinent questions of his ex-player color commentators. As for those color guys, Ken Singleton is in a class by himself, bringing a vast history and intelligence to the broadcasts. In a close second is Al Leiter, who brings the same to the table but from a pitcher's perspective. Even Jack Curry is starting to come into his own after a move from print to broadcast journalism. On the other hand, there's the radio team. John Sterling has a great voice, but he's too consumed with his "shtick" for me to stand listening to for long. Suzyn Waldman doesn't seem to add much to the broadcast except for the aspect that she's essentially a super-fan who gets to broadcast the games.
3. If you could change three things about the new Yankee Stadium what would you change?
Monument Park can barely be seen behind the centerfield wall. It needs to be modified. The old one was spacious and airy while the new one is feels like a cemetery. I don't know exactly, but something should be done to make it feel more like a park again and less like a concrete bunker.
